I don’t have anything terribly original to say about the Chauvin verdict. We’re stuck with the fact that, even though we all saw the murder on video, there was still reason to worry that he would be acquitted. there are far too many Americans who view a uniform as a license to kill.

From belinda ridgewood:
Greg Dworkin‘s APR today highlighted an appalling column from Nate Cohn in the New York Times that ridiculously both-sidesed our national politics. GrafZeppelin127 started a thread with an excellent analogy, and it attracted others. I also particularly liked Crashing Vor‘s reply, and ForsythAl60‘s as well.
